Republicans Fight for Responsible Spending

Ranking member on the House Ways and Means Committee Representative Vinny deMacedo and his counterpart in the Senate, Senator Michael Knapik are fighting for the responsible spending of the money being allocated to Massachusetts through the Federal Stimulus Bill.

In today's Boston Herald, deMacedo and Knapik encourage Commonwealth taxpayers to be the eyes and ears of wasteful spending. The pair of lawmakers announced "an e-mail “hotline” for the public to report to them - by word or photograph - any perceived abuses or wasting of the funds. Such as: workers sleeping on the job, projects dragging out for no good reason, or expenditures that seem plain absurd."

Check out the article here and be sure to respond to Rep. deMacedo and Sen. Knapik with any thoughts or concerns.
